Is it me, or did my Cougs turn the letter “P” upside down to get the lowercase “d” on our new QB’s nameplate?

I believe the Mets or Pirates did this at one point for the surname "d'Arnaud". Just flipped a P. It was a bit more effective for that name because there was no E.

Is it just me, or does the orange on Clemson's pants not match the orange on the helmet or jersey at all? Maybe the lack of purple next to it is messing with my eyes.

UCLA has a racial justice patch covering the UA mark on the jerseys. UA mark is still visible on pants, cleats, and accessories

I was trying to figure this out as well. I told myself it was just because it didn't have any purple to separate it from the white, but the more I looked at the pants stripes they really seemed more like a Tennessee Volunteer shade of orange.

Looks fine here...probably an issue with lighting or how the tv cameras can make shades of colors look different than real life.

If this is an intentional shot at UA for trying to cancel their contract it’s pretty hilarious

That's the way I saw it on my screen as well, like it was closer to Tennessee on the pants but more saturated on the helmet. It's a classic look but the lack of purple does bother me.

It also seemed like maybe the lighter orange I was seeing on some players' pants stripes was due to the stretching of the pants. The material Nike uses for those stripes can start to look a little lighter the more they are stretched. It's not like the thicker knit stripes of yesteryear.

I'd like to take a moment to honor one of the greatest uniform elements in sports history that is too often forgotten.

Hate how they look green on TV now. Would look great for South Florida, but they need to go back to the true gold, in my opinion

The gray facemask stands out like a sore thumbs. The facemask needs to be navy and it would amazing.

Nah.

 

It would just look like an extra shiny version of Navy's helmet.

How is the current ND helmet not true gold? From where I'm sitting, it's the truest gold in sports. And it's now much more representative of the Golden Dome from which it draws inspiration.

 

Are you referring to the actual gold flecked paint from their previous helmets? Because these still have gold in the paint, but this application doesn't have to be re-painted every week (which is enough to make me love this current helmet, as someone who used to be a part of that weekly re-painting. It always made for a fun fact, but a decidedly unfun process.)

Maybe it's the juxtaposition of seeing them with a team wearing gold helmets and horrible mustard pants that tricks your mind into thinking that both teams are mismatched.
